Incroyable rencontre !!!
C'est une splendide publication avec une très belle attitude du sujet saisie à l'instant décisif dans une belle lumière et sous une excellente profondeur de champ permettant d'apprécier la délicatesse des couleurs et la finesse des détails.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
PS - Je n'ai pas eu la chance de rencontrer de guépard lors de mon séjour en Afrique australe et c'est là un de mes grands regrets...

Fantastic animal in an interesting bush. great pic.
Beautiful and majestic pose.Very well captured this Cheetah.Excellent details,mainly black dots are looking nice.Well managed BG light also.Good work.
But little bit anxious after listening that you didn't see much animals at KNP which you use to see in October.On 25th May,2014 we will enter(after visiting Graskop area 5 Days) KNP and will stay till 9th May 2014 in Orpen,Skukuza and Pretoriuscop area.Have you done Sunrise Bush Walk/Sunset Bush Walk?I have decided to do that in Skukuza.Can you tell me as a Foreigner,a "WILD CARD" would be better or not?
Thanks for sharing such excellent natural habitat picture,
Regards and have a nice time,

Glad you enjoyed your holiday, Anna. This portrait of cheetah is superb. Looks like posing for you; but ... your great merit is that it did not pose for you; and all who are dedicated to know the nature photography; how difficult is a free capture; Full body; of a wild animal.
Thank you; also; to see this "cat-Greyhound" (as I call it) in an environment where the vegetation is green and plentiful. Accustomed to arid savannas where we see in the documentary ...
Congratulations on this "great hunt" Ms. Great White Hunter: ha ha ha!
A big hug,

Awesome image Anna,
I am always marveled by the variety of animals that I often see posted from Africa. As a young boy I had dreams of going there someday to view all the wildlife in their natural habitat.
This Cheetah is such a gorgeous specimen, and you have done a superb job of capturing it's likeness with your lens. Your beautiful photo looks like it could have come out of the pages of National Geographic magazine. Perfectly exposed and displaying exceptional detail and natural colors. Did you notice the tiny red flower petal hidden near the cheetahs back right rear paw?

Excellent close-up photo of the Cheetah,
with a very fine POV a little bit lower
than the subject and with its pose giving
dynamism to the photo, wonderful light,
excellent focus, sharpness, details, TFS

Just back from a two weeks vacation on Lesvos, Greece.
Fantastic photo of this Cheetah taken from a ideal low POV in splendid quality.
Hope to see a lot more.

Always impressive to see a cheetah and here with such a natural picture. Lucky you to have seen it so close! It was obviously interested by something close..but not the photographers.

Although you didn't see so many animals, this one alone worth all the effort. Not only a fantastic memory, but an exceptional image also. Very well composed, sharp, colors are great and beautifully framed. Top class image, and an interesting personal note as always from you. Excellent post! Congratulations.
Best regards, László

Hi Anna, Great close up of one of Africa's coolest cats. I managed to photograph some while in Tanzania but they were too lazy that day and wouldn't stand up so I could not get any good shots, maybe next time? Say hi to Loot for me:)

Beautiful shot Anna.
Your timing was much better than mine with this image. Mines mouth was still closed. Great composition, good natural colour, nice sharp detail and well balanced contrast makes this one a special to view the beauty of this animal. It even gave you an excellent pose although I remember it was just for a very fleeting moment.
Well done and thanks for sharing.
